I want us to fit in," the superhero witch Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) tells her android husband Vision (Paul Bettany) in an early episode of the new series "WandaVision." But somehow now they've landed here, in Disney+'s first MCU TV series, appearing in nine half-hour episodes instead of in a feature film. As the series goes on, time and references morph and blur; Disney publicity says the series' style will move from an imitation of "I Love Lucy" to "The Brady Bunch" and on to "The Office." Wanda and Vision don't fit into '50s suburbia (or '60s suburbia, for that matter), and they have to conceal their identities from neighbors and friends. "WandaVision" is a detour from the usual MCU formula and an exciting preview of how adventurous the MCU is willing to be with its Disney+ shows.

President Donald Trump is planning a red carpet, military band, and a US Air Force flypast on the morning of Joe Biden's inauguration, according to ABC News. Biden's inauguration ceremony will be socially-distanced and star-studded. President Donald Trump is planning an "elaborate, military-style sendoff" for himself before President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration on January 20, according to ABC News. The president hopes to outshine Biden's ceremony by concurrently hosting a televised political rally in Florida, sources told Axios last month. Biden's inauguration plans will be pared-down and socially-distanced but, nonetheless, star-studded.

Some VCs have been declaring that San Francisco is over, and now they have the numbers to prove it. In 2020, San Francisco reached only 81.2% of the angel and seed deals it made in 2019. This means, compared to other major cities, San Francisco was less dominant than it's been in the last decade. Similarly, prominent VCs like Palantir co-founder Joe Lonsdale left San Francisco and Opendoor co-founder J.D. Meanwhile, New York City, Chicago, and Los Angeles all experienced a decrease in deals — albeit not as drastic a drop as San Francisco.

CHICAGO, Jan 15 (Reuters) - A big burst of federal aid for U.S. states and local governments in Democratic President-elect Joe Biden’s massive fiscal stimulus plan helped higher-yielding debt from lower-rated issuers in the U.S. municipal bond market on Friday. Investors have flocked to high-yield muni bond funds, which reported record-high net inflows topping $1 billion in the week ended Jan. 13. Groups representing states, cities and counties have been clamoring for more federal aid as the economic fallout from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic led to revenue shortfalls. Moody’s Analytics recently reduced its projected fiscal 2020 to fiscal 2022 gross shortfall for states and local governments to $330 billion from $450 billion due to an improved economic outlook. With New York State’s new fiscal year beginning on April 1, Governor Andrew Cuomo on Friday called on Washington to pass Biden’s plan and fill the state’s $15 billion budget gap.

REUTERS/Brendan McDermidCHICAGO (Reuters) - A new, more transmissible variant of the coronavirus first discovered in Britain has been detected in 10 U.S. states, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Friday, warning that it could become the dominant circulating variant in the United States by March. The variant, known as B.1.1.7, is believed to be twice as transmissible as the current version of the virus circulating in the United States. Its rapid spread will increase the burden on health resources at a time when infections are surging, further sapping strained healthcare resources and increasing the need for better adherence to mitigation strategies, such as social-distancing and mask-wearing, the CDC said in its weekly report on death and disease. It also increases the percentage of the population that needs to be vaccinated to achieve protective herd immunity to control the pandemic, the CDC said.

Republican senators who voted to acquit Trump in February — in a hollowed-out trial without witnesses — misread the president, completely seemingly convinced that impeachment alone might temper his actions. Trump’s Senate enablers allowed Trump to escape the consequences of his abuse of power by their near-unanimous vote to acquit last February. If the Senate convicts Trump, a simple Senate majority can bar him from ever again holding any federal office. And unlike Trump, Nixon resigned when Republican congressional leaders told him that he would likely be convicted in a Senate impeachment trial. Duty demands that he be convicted by the Senate and, by a Senate vote, barred from ever again holding the power of the presidency.

The problems stem from a confluence of factors as auto manufacturers compete against the sprawling consumer electronics industry for chip supplies. In at least one case, the shortage ties back to President Donald Trump’s policies aimed at curtailing technology transfers to China. Huawei stockpiled chips ahead of the ban in order to keep building what products it could after it took effect. An AutoForecast Solutions report estimated the global auto industry had already experienced lost volume of 202,000 vehicles as of Jan. 13. Executives at automakers and suppliers said they are adapting production schedules to protect chips used in higher-profit vehicles.

(CNN) Should this NFL game be shown as a live broadcast or on the History Channel? That's the question that's been put to Tom Brady and Drew Brees ahead of their meeting in the NFL playoffs this Sunday, the first postseason game in NFL history to feature two opposing starting quadragenarian quarterbacks. The 43-year-old Brady tweeted a "History Awaits" picture ahead of the clash, while 42-year-old Brees gave it a thumbs up, saying : "This is good!" Brady joked that he will have to overcome an age difference with Brees if he wants to win on Sunday.

Reconnecting with an old partnerAfter this funding round, Perlera reconnected with an old friend, Luc Succes, 30, who came aboard as cofounder. Inventory is a problem for Seasons, Perlera acknowledged, mostly because it's so expensive to acquire, and sizes often sell out quickly. "The second time around, I think we had to build a reputation that we could build a product," Perlera said.

New York (CNN) An estimated 1,000 fast food workers across the United States went on strike Friday over low wages, staging protests in honor of Martin Luther King Jr . Nearly 20% of the estimated 3.9 million fast food workers in America are Black, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, though Black Americans make up just 13% of the US population. "Raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour is among the most powerful tools to lift up Black and Brown workers," she said. Blalock said her employer cut her hours back in March when Covid-19-related lockdowns caused many fast food chains to lose business. Fast food employees make up a large chunk of the essential workers who have continued to go into work while many other Americans worked from home.

The dovish comments reinforced expectations that the Fed will allow inflation to rise above the Fed's target of 2% for longer before raising rates. Yields on the 10-year Treasury note rose as high as 1.138%, up from an earlier low of 1.075%. Inflation expectations also increased, with 10-year TIPS now pricing in average annual inflation of 2.09% for the next decade, up from 2.06% before Powell's comments. A swift market sell-off last week pushed yields on 10-year Treasuries to highs last seen in March. Five-year note yields edged up to 0.480%.

In Chicago, where teachers are not getting vaccinated yet, the powerful teachers union is pushing back against the district requiring teachers to return to classrooms as it gradually reopens school buildings.

Puerto Rican police are investigating the death of a transgender man found with multiple gunshot wounds Jan. 9. Damián is the seventh known transgender person to die by violence in Puerto Rico since last February, according to the Transgender Law Center. In April, the suspects, Juan Carlos Pagán Bonilla, 21, and Sean Díaz de León, 19, became the first people in Puerto Rico to face federal hate crime charges. The following month, Yampi Méndez Arocho, a 19-year-old transgender man, died in Moca after being shot twice in the face and twice in the back. The Transgender Law Center grieved Damian’s death in a tweet Wednesday, writing, “We are horrified at what you experienced in your last moments.
